CNN's Erin Burnett: Obama’s Plan is Old & Doesn’t Add Up
http://www.ijreview.com ^ | October 24, 2012 | Kyle Becker

When CNN host Erin Burnett vivisected Obama’s new economic plan, it became clear that the network was putting its reputation ahead of political capital with the current administration. Good for CNN.

If she keeps this up she'll end up on Fox News, with blonde hair. And that would be a good thing. Good for her for saying the truth about the incompetent Kenyan communist. How long will she last at CNN?

Pretty bad when the Communist News Network bails on their favorite child.

I’ve been watching CNN quite a bit this past month and they are a different news channel then they’ve been the past 30 years. I would even say they have gone after the O much harder then fox.

"Good for cnn," hell. They smell blood in the water. Put another way, these are rats abandoning a sinking ship.

They are losing it over at DU

“CNN’s coverage has been horribly biased

I was watching Erin Burnett OutFront last night, and she trashes the president’s 20 page plan and takes what he said in the debate completely out of context, all with a smug look on her face. I used to think CNN was fair, but after hearing them call the THIRD debate a tie after Obama won the CBS poll of undecideds by 30 points was disgusting. He won the CBS poll by double digits in debate 2 as well, and they also called that one a tie.

And their coverage on so-called “Benghazi-gate” (what a joke) has been horrible.

CNN used to be honest. They called them as they saw them. Then, the right-wing noise machine got to them and they decided to be “fair and balanced”. Not Faux News supposed fair and balanced, but basically finding fault with BOTH sides of the aisle and basically saying, well, a pox on both the Democrats and the Republicans.

Lately, however, they seem to be turning into Fox News’s evil sibling. They have all these obnoxious commentators like Dana Loesch (who excuse Akin’s legitimate rape comments), Ari Fleischer (who lies off his ass every night), and Erick Erickson (who I want to punch in the face every time I see him on tv). The liberal guys they get to counter these guys are jokes. It reminds me of Hannity & Colmes. Stupid but loud conservative, vs smart but weak-kneed and kowtowing liberal.”

Romney will win in a landslide

Not so fast with the Human Nervous Tick being a Conservative. Burnett got something right for a change....but she still is quite liberal...and has worked mainly for liberal CNBC (yes that network is liberal) and CNN

Even CNN is realizing that Obama is a joke...and seems to be getting over its White Guilt Liberalism...unlike MSNBC

DAMN! Erin is even better looking as per that photo and the video , than she was on CNBC. Truly one of the great looking ladies on TV.I haven’t seen her for about 6 months.

You are right about CNBC being liberal. I watch it occasionally but I keep my perspective on their coverage of the markets.

Wasn’t Burnett another ex-Goldman Sachs employee too? I thought I read that some where.

The other day they had two “analysts” on with a panel of the regulars. Both of these guys were obviously in the tank for Obama. Interestingly, some of the panel members jumped all over the “analysts” and ripped them really good. I was shocked.

I think people in general are getting fed up to the point they aren’t holding back any longer with their real views. Burnett is a mystery to me. I didn’t know she was as liberal as she has become on CNN.

Perhaps CNN is clearing the way for Hillary in 2016.

Last night every time I turned on CNN they were shilling for the president. Maybe they are trying to be “ fair and balanced.” Too little too late.

Ah, but Rick Santelli more than makes up for it. He delivered a haymaker back in early 2009 that’s still being felt today.

Yeah, I like Santelli. He is a good guy. And he did get the ball rolling in 2009.

She was always a liberal, but really ripped it when she called Dubya a “chimp” on TV. She IS guilty and turns my stomach. I watch CNBC all day to keep up with the markets as I trade for my living. It’s painful and I writes notes to them often. Dillan Radigan was another creep that was almost unwatchable.

The MSM has been all in for Obama but a few have started to hedge their bets with the realization he might lose.

They have decided they don’t want to go down with him.

That is interesting about Burnett. Yeah, I know about Radigan and he is a real creep.

Good luck on your trades...this is a tough market right now.

CBB’s problem is not that the kenyan is “a joke” but rather that they expect that he might lose the election and then CNN would suddenly look ridiculous, even to itself.

Pretty is as pretty does—I still remember vividly when she called W a monkey when she was at CNBC.

I might reconsider if she says something similar about Zero.
